    Re: Back To Vinyl?

    Re: 1212m and X-Fi?

    I don't know if you can interface the cards as you desire. Instead of an answer, I have some questions.

    (1) For what purpose do you need the EMU-1212 in addition, that the X-Fi can not do?

    Re: Youre PERSONAL recomendations for head phoens

    Perhaps I should revise my statement, as I assumed that everyone wants amplification that will be sufficient for all types of music recordings. I guess this depends on what you listen to. I can use...

    Re: Youre PERSONAL recomendations for head phoens

    Reports of breakage are common with the SR-60 in comparison to other headphones from what I have observed, with the wire being typical and the post joints that adjust the head size, also being...

    Re: Youre PERSONAL recomendations for head phoens

    While I can't argue the SR-60 being a good deal for sound, it should be noted for the original poster that it has very low build quality. The MDR-V6/MDR-7506 will remain the highest build quality...

    Re: which 5.1 combination is better

    Use Infnity Primus 140 bookshelf speakers(4" 2 ways) and a suitable subwoofer placed near the set-up crossed at about 120-140Hz. This will easily result in far superior sound quality as compared to...

    Re: Youre PERSONAL recomendations for head phoens

    If you want a high quality headphone with extreme build quality that will last for years or decades(except the pads of course, which need to be changed every 3-4 years), consider the Sony MDR-V6(not...

    Re: mp3 players?

    Yes, the headphone amp in it is fine. I regularly use it with a Sony MDR-CD3000, and it has no percieved degradation being driven by the Zen Vision. Now, if the headphone is not sensitive enough, the...

    Re: How good are logitech speakers?

    Tube electronics are outdated for sound reproduction purposes(such as in a pre-amplifier or amplifier) if the purpose is to effect the signal as little as possible. Where tubes are useful is where...
